I SINCERELY THANK ALL MY WUNDERGROUND FRIENDS AND LURKERS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD FOR COMING TO MY BLOG OVER THIS YEAR THAT IS ABOUT TO END... I HIGHLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME
MAY IT BE WRITTEN AND MAY IT BE SEALED THAT 2014 WILL BE A YEAR OF HOPE, PROSPERITY AND PEACE TO ALL OF US GATHERED HERE.


_________________________________________________ ______________________________________

BIG RAIN FOR THE EAST COAST THIS WEEKEND... Expect localized flooding.
Tonight we could see some freezing rain here in the NYC-Boston Area.

Expect some gusty winds with this rain, especially at the coast. Wind advisories have been issued for all Long Island and Southeastern Coastal New England



My new graphic... worked on the banner for nearly 5 days on my free time.
NWS Alerts as of 4:20 PM Eastern Time




Hurricane Scorecard 2014

It's understood the upcoming Hurricane Season is still far from now. I, in advance, have been developing a new style for this year prediction list. Ameliorating from that of last year from which I received some technical problems from viewers, this year Im working on a different format.

The new hurricane scorecard will be on a PDF Document, that way you will be able to download the chart from my blog and see the entire list for yourself. The List will will have better and easier font size, organized and structured description as to what is being displayed and overall easier to understand.

I'll be updating and uploading such list every 2 weeks (about so) with the latest predictions from anyone who would like to participate. I know it's too early for any deep thought into the season but I began introducing the "graphic" in March for the 2013 season and time just ran fast, with people trying to update their numbers and submit new predictions past the deadline of July 1st... which will be the deadline for this year as well.

Click on the picture below to download the document to your computer, virus-malware risk free. Give me your opinions as to what I should fix, improve or add/remove.

After you click on the picture just download the document, it should only take you few seconds to do so.




Note: "Stance Number" means where you stand in regards as to the counting. I will give you a number which will be shown next to your name... just for record keeping.

Again, Im still working on the chart, but now you have an idea as to what to expect. A sample prediction was included.
The last column to the right will be the outcome which will be done after the season ends.


I'll have a blog on the winners of the 2013 Hurricane Season later and more information about this PDF List as there are some rules I will want to discuss with you.

You can start giving me your predictions as soon as April 2nd all the way until July 1st, 2014

Am I the only one who can withstand sitting positions? Standing is what hurts...it's not natural to stand for long periods of time. I feel bad for the professions that require that. Sitting...you can do so much sitting down, like typing, games, sleeping...it's a really useful position.

But that's just me.

I thank God for.placing some people in my path who I call friends.

Life in the south as for being alone, taking responsibilities as an adult.for yourself.changed my life greatly.
I was taught the hard way here and Im thankful for the big challenges as they only make you stronger.

I love the south but remember, home is.home

Right now we are stopping at.Greenville, South Carolina

Glad your on your safely on your way Max..
Don't let one experience in the "South" influence your overall opinion of it..
I had experiences in the "North" but I have not let them change my overall..
Changes are always difficult..

US Route 41 comes within a 1/2 mile of my house, Max.

;)

BTW, I talked to my mother (she grew up in PA), and she agreed with me. Atlanta could have put salt and sand down, but it would've been useless. Too cold. What was needed was something for traction, forget melting the snow, that's foolish.

But hey, this isn't the first time this has happened to a Southern city, nor will it be the last. Of course, up north this happens too (re: Chicago a few years back (I want to say 2010?)), but more snow is generally required for the same effect.

I'm also curious as to know the terrain of the Northeast. If Pcroton or LT could comment, I'd appreciate it. One of the reasons the Midwest doesn't care about snow is well because it's flat. Down here, it's super hilly, which compounds the issue to the point that you wish you had chains to deal with the slippery conditions.

Stay home. Leave tomorrow.
Think about all the oil on the pavements left by abnormally high extended vehicle presence. Salt or rise in temps may turn roadway into an oily slippery slush.
Or not.

At least I see that the traffic around the city is slowly improving. The sun is doing its job to melt.this.nightmare away

You are ri ght Brian... so many buses stuck here, I saw kids being dropped off after midnight on some bus stops. No car cared to stop as the law required so when there is a school bus. No one even cared about the the red lights last night.

There are hundreds of students returned to school here where they remain sheltered today.

What I find wrong and who to blame for.this is the state.

I see it was the State of Georgia responsible for not handling this situation well. Starting with the road cleaning.

Hospitals, insurance companies, emergency management, government facilities and all public works all around Atlanta will be very busy

From the Atlanta discussion yesterday at 4:11 a.m. I'm not posting the whole discussion because it is very long.

ALL THESE ACCUMULATION...
OTHER THAN THE NW GA LIGHT BAND...WILL MEET WARNING CRITERIA SO HAVE
CONTINUED WARNING AND EXPANDED THIS TO ANOTHER TIER OF COUNTIES
INCLUDING ATL METRO AREA
.

There was no justification for what happened. The winter storm warning was issued at 4:11 a.m. for Atlanta and the metro counties. It's the job of school administrators to read these when deciding whether to open schools. Keeping schools open in a city like Atlanta not well equipped to deal with snow on a day when a winter storm warning was issued was inexcusable.


It would not have mattered to me what some school administrator had to say about it.
No way would I have gone to work yesterday or today in Atlanta, nor would I put my child on a school bus yesterday.
I've seen school bus drivers drive before.

People need to take personal responsibilities a little more to heart.

North Georgia got more.snow than the rest of.the state. Which was not.supposed.to.


Once again the models failed to properly analyze a Yukon disturbance which dropped down and caused the trough to go neutral instead of the modeled positive...and this caused the shift...which also brought snows up north as well.

Gotta think train equipment, switches, signals all suffered, Max.

We had 2" up here overnight. Heard as much as 5" in central-eastern CT actually.


When I left work yesterday it seemed Amtrak was doing fine again in this region after a week of big problems. Just one lone cancelled train to harrisburg was all.

Got home and checked alerts and they had overhead wire problems in one of the hudson tubes during the eve rush which caused delays and cancellations again.

I've been avoiding rush hours so I've done alright. 504am train in. 246pm train out.

Good morning.all

North Georgia got more.snow than the rest of.the state. Which was not.supposed.to.

What happened to me and my train... well, after the miserable night I had trying to get to the station on time I had to return to Marietta after getting caught in the jam on Interstate 75.
Trust me this I dont see happening in the north, such a story I gotta tell, when I was standing there on the.freeway stopping cars to let.my cab get through going the wrong way.

I got.home after midnight. All the snow became ice overnight.
The amount of.accidents I saw was ridiculous. I can't get off my head the.smell of spinning tires, you could see the "fog" all along the highway from all the cars, busses, trucks and even police.cars stuck.

I badly missed my train even though I left an hour and a half earlier.

Atlanta wasn't supposed to get snow (not this much)...there was no time to prepare. Combine that with the fact that salt/sand is USELESS at the temperatures they are at (18-19).....Atlanta's going to be hurting for a while.

All Atlanta Metro area roads are.either closed or blocked by thousands.of.accidents. I have never seen this before
POlice everywhere, ambulances, firefighters, crashes, sruck cars and the terrible.smell of spinning tires.
This is unbelievable. Look k up for.yourselves on google maps the.traffic.for.Atlanta metro roads and highways... bunch of reds every where.
This was done by mere two inches of.snow!!!!!



People weren't ready for the snow here either. UNCA already shut the school down for 2nd day tomorrow. NCDOT got caught off guard so the snow stick to the roads and the temperatures not going above freezing for 3 days isn't going to help much.
